Universal holiday club
A summary
This summer we will be running 2 weeks of holiday clubs in Seaford at the Mercread Youth Centre. Our theme this year is' An Olympic Odyssey', offering children and young people the opportunity to 'travel' each day to different Olympic/Paralympic-participating and former host nations around the world through food, art, games and sports. DATES: week 1: 19th - 22nd August 2024 / week 2: 27th - 30th August TIMES: 9.30am to 2pm each day LOCATION: Mercread Youth Centre in Seaford, just by The Crouch FREE places for children eligible for benefits-related free school meals and/or other criteria (eg. young carers, children with EHCP) - get in touch for more details. A limited number of paid places are available - please enquire by email to Each day, kids/young people attending the clubs will - 'travel' to different countries and find out customs, traditions and culture there; - learn some basic phrases in the relevant language; - prepare, cook and bake various snacks, drinks and lunches inspired by recipes from the country; - eat and drink the food they've made in café/restaurant settings they set up; - enjoy arts & crafts, music, games, challenges, fun and frolics inside and outside; - get outdoors as much as possible, including to the beach. Activities are best suited to children aged 7-12 years old, but there is plenty of space and scope for slightly older children too. Parents and carers will be invited to join us towards the end of each session to see what we've been up and to share some food tips and tastings - simple ideas from abroad to bring new, healthy and economical food and drink into the festive or daily menu at home. ***This activity has been funded through the Department for Education’s (DfE) Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme and coordinated by East Sussex County Council. Fully funded places are available for young people eligible for benefits-related free school meals. This eligibility criteria has been defined by the DfE. Additionally young people in several other target cohorts can attend funded places, such as those with SEND or Looked After Children (LAC).

About your mentors
All Abroad! Bus / Julia Vogado
Cook, eat, make, play, travel, languages, fun
All Abroad! Bus is a language and culture project I have set up to 'take people on journeys' to the places, people and cultures of the languages they are learning (or may one day learn), without having to leave their local area! I've loved languages ever since I was at school and doing exchanges with my pen pals, realising already just how widely languages can help you to open doors to other cultures, to other ways of living, doing and thinking. Unfortunately, for children and young people, it's not always easy or possible to travel abroad on a regular basis, if at all, so I have tried to create the closest thing I can to the same kind of experiences. I am a qualified languages teacher (of French. Spanish and German) but I am happiest teaching without the constraints of a classroom or National curriculum, which is why you are more likely to find me running after-school clubs, tutoring online and in-person or running holiday clubs such as these. I have run holiday clubs for HAF since summer 2021 when we travelled to France, Germany, Spain and South America over 4 weeks, through Christmas, New Year and Easter when we celebrated these special times as the locals do in these same regions. It's so lovely to see so many of the same children and young people coming back again and again because they enjoy their time so much at the clubs and they know it is a fun and safe space to spend time.

Cancel more than one week before the start to receive a full refund.No refunds can be given for cancellations made 7 days or less before the booked session date, although bookings can be transferred to another person for the same class. It may also be possible to transfer to another date, subject to availability, but this will be at the discretion of All Abroad! Bus. Should any sessions need to be cancelled by the Mentor, then credits or refunds will be offered.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
